This is how you can avoid workplace accidents this winter

Safety shoes that are manufactured to cope with our Nordic climate are of great importance in preventing workplace injuries. Cold feet, for example, affect safety when climbing ladders or working on slippery surfaces. - It pays to spend a little extra time checking that you have found a product with the right safety features and cold protection, says Mikael Baggens, business developer at Ejendals, Sweden.

Winter has slowly but surely begun to make its entrance. At the same time, there are many professional groups that do not succumb to any subzero temperatures. They are used to withstand both freezing cold, wet surfaces, slips and rain-mixed snow that has turned to ice. There is no temperature at which it is forbidden to work outdoors, but not wearing good safety shoes and gloves can have devastating consequences.

Cold hands and feet do not only affect the ability to keep the heat in the whole body, it is also a safety risk. This places extra high demands on our safety gloves and shoes, says Mikael Baggens, business developer at Ejendals.

"Safe, dry and comfortable"

More than half of all workplace injuries are injuries to hands, wrists, fingers, feet, ankles and toes. One of the most common causes of work accidents in the construction industry is falling. If you work outdoors, it is especially important to invest in good quality shoes for different types of cold environments. 

- The safety shoes must keep the feet safe, dry and comfortable all day. They also need to be warm and well equipped for really cold weather, but also flexible and ergonomic in their design so they don't feel clumsy. Design and function go hand in hand in all our TEGERA and JALAS products. Design has an amazing ability to significantly improve the primary function of safety products, says Mikael Baggens.
